“lovely hotel”
Reviewed 21 October 2008

we arrived home from can garden resort on the 14th oct after 2 weeks holiday i liked the hotel very much...some of the staff were very nice others liked the germans ...the food was very good we like to try to eat local food which was served in the hotel ...our room was nice clean and a good size but we didnt get it cleand twice... after you have been out all day at 17. 30 we like to go back to our room for a shower [some days the water was cool ] and a relax befor our evening meal .....my husband and i had turkey tummy but i would say it was the heat not the food...would i go back!!! yes if the price was right [but only for 1 week].... the area is purpose built for tourists [and yes they try to rip you off] ...we like to walk but nowhere to walk to only shops [when youve seen one you have seen them all] ....the dolmus is worth a go it will stop out side hotel for you and drop you back there...side has a nice water front ....if you can make it past all the shop keepers.... if you want to buy anything you need to have a price in your head and stick to it .... i would call it little germany !!!!

We have just stayed (large group )at the Can Garden for two weeks and all of us have said this is one of the best hotels we have stayed in and would go back.
The hotel is really clean, the rooms are very good the food is good too.
the hotel was mainly german but this did not bother us and we did not get treated any different, the staff were great very friendly worked really hard the whole time we were there.
i find it really hard to believe that people got food poisioning from this hotel more likely from day trips out and not being carefull what you eat.
The evenings are low key and entertainment was poor and only had a few good shows but they tried hard and there is plenty of drink flowing and its what you make of it.
we too had a couple of pretty blondes in our party that got alot of attention but they never over stepped the mark, we also had 5/6yr olds and they were great with them too.
All in all a FAB hols sorry to be home.

just returned fromthis hotel if you are german or speak it you will be welcomed.
The hotel rooms and bars etc are great and newly furbished beautifully clean, drinks not watered down, coffee great.
The pool is clean but just not enough room around it or enough sunbeds. The pool bar is where afternoon tea and biscuits is served but there are not enough tables so you tend to not bother, it would be lovely if the terrace bar were open all day and afternoon tea served here. The meals in the buffet were good lots of choice loads of fattening cakes.
The rooms are sparsely cleaned and a couple of times we came back to the room at about half five to find the cleaner just starting, one night I walked out of the shower in the buff after putting the do not disturb sign on the door to find the cleaner coming in and yet she was not happy when I shooed her out !. Our room was also above the vents and so always smelt of onions and constant noise from the delivery lorries.
The little bus to the beach is handy and if you walk down onto the beach next to the shower are fresh drinks and a little hut with lilos in for guest use. The beach food is fine too. The beach is not the cleanest but it is ok.
On the down side it is full of germans and the animation team would not leave my blond 18 year old daughter alone and pestered her all the time when she was sunbathing .
The hotel is in the middle of nowhere with just a handful of shops so quite boring unless you get the dolmus into side. Please be aware though that side hates the english and we and many other english people we met were ripped of in the restaurants. We had a meal in charlies bar on the left upstairs in front of the harbour and the bill came to 180.00 english pounds for three !! I refused to pay and when I told the owner to get the police he backed down but would not accept less than 100 for the meal a complete rip off DO NOT eat in the town. I even heard one turk say I like nice germans not british. I have been all over turkey but never will i go back to side it is a not nice.

This was our second year running at can garden resort.Once again we had a lovely time.
The hotel was very clean and cleaners were constantly working to maintain high standard.
Our room was cleaned every day.All the staff worked hard,were very ploite and helpful.
Animation team were differenmt from last year.Very good and entertaing round pool in daytime.
Food was very good and plenty of choices to choose from (something for everyone).
we did hear a couple of people had stomache upsets,but also found when going on trips other people from other hotels had same.
The shops were an added bonus and very well stocked.
We will certainlly go back to this hotel again in the future.

Food was very poor quality, generally lumps of meat and bone swimming in different sauces every night. Entertainment was awful in the evenings. Side area is popular with Germans with around 80% being at the Can Garden. Because of this, all staff generally spoke German and assumed you were German. By day 3 all members of our party had severe stomach up set and stomach cramps. This continued throughout the holiday. When reported to the Rep, we appeared to be one of many. On return to the UK one member of the party has been confirmed as having e-coli and has been unable to work for 2 weeks.

We stayed at the hotel from 2-16 August and had a wonderful time. The hotel is fantastic and the staff were wonderful. Tho the guy at the Pool Bar during the day could do with having a smile on his face! We didn't feel the need to get up early every day to get a sunbed, there are beds on the Boat's deck above the pool bar and after lunch there was always a selection of beds by the pool available.

The food was good, plenty of choices for everyone. Would definately recommend the Sea Food and Mediterranean Restaurants.

Pat, the rep, was very helpful when planning our trips and was available at the hotel most days if help was required.

Do visit the silver and leather shops in the hotel, the staff were very helpful, particular in the silver shop. She even cleaned my bracelet for free after 2 weeks of wearing in the pool.

Overall we were sad to leave, met some lovely people and had a great holiday.

One small tip - buy the Club Dance CD from the Entertainment Team for the coach trip back to the Airport - its hilarious!! Anyone reading this who was on "that" coach will know exactly what I mean.

we just come back from can garden and 1st let me tell you. this is a 80% german resort. the hotel is fantastic clean and the staff 85% of them are so helpful. But they speak more german than english. FOOD. is very nice bit repatative but thats usual on all inclusive.ENTERTAINMENT. ok if you are 5 and 6 but for adults poor. AREA. side and colaki is 90% german if u want a great turkish holiday go marmaris been there 3 times and love it. oh and if u think its still cheap in turkey not anymore its gone up thanks to them taking on the euro. example breakfast can be £6 and a pint £4.
